The high performance compact positioning voice coil driven linear stages are used in positioning applications where high speed, high acceleration or high accuracy is required.
The motorized linear stages are fully self-contained. Each stage utilizes one or two voice coil motor(s), a linear carriage system, an optical quadrature encoder feedback device and a home switch. The standard positioning resolutions of 1 micron through 29.95 microns are available for immediate delivery. Other resolutions are available upon request.
Range of motion is from 0.50” (12.7 mm) through 5.20” (132.1 mm). Continuous (stall) forces range from 1 lb (4.5 N) through 23.0 lb (102 N). The intermittent forces at 10% duty cycle are from 3.1 lb (13.8 N) through 73 lb (323 N).
The stages may be stacked in XY, XZ and XYZ configurations.
